The adventures of an urbane bar-hopping transplant to New York.

Location: New York, New York, United States

I'm a storyteller in the New York area who is a regular on NPR's "This American Life" and at shows around the city. Moved to New York in 2006 and am working on selling a memoir of my years as a greeting card writer, and (as a personal, noncommercial obsession) a nonfiction book called "How to Love God Without Being a Jerk." My agent is Adam Chromy at Artists and Artisans. If you came here after hearing about my book on "This American Life" and Googling my name, the "How to Love God" book itself isn't in print yet, and may not even see print in its current form (I'm focusing on humorous memoir), but here's a sample I've posted in case you're curious anyway: Sample How To Love God Introduction, Pt. 1 of 3. Or just look through the archives for September 18, 2007.) The book you should be expecting is the greeting card book, about which more information is pending. Keep checking back!

Quick Query for Steve Martin-loving New Yorkers

I've got a ticket to see Steve Martin this Saturday at 4pm at the Directors Guild Theater. It's part of the New Yorker Festival, which I dearly love, but I'll be out of town this weekend (Newark), and I won't be able to go. I've got the ticket for sale on eBay, but for some reason no one is biting so far, even though other tickets are selling briskly at over $100.

At any rate, in the event it doesn't sell by, say, mid-Friday, would anyone like it? It cost me $34 ($25 plus Ticketmaster's unconscionable usury), and I'd hate to see it go to waste. If you're interested, contact me through the usual channels.

Update: And the ticket goes to Tracy! Which is where it belongs anyway.
